Remarks: I do not remember the literature about this species which is scarce both in Italy and Spain. Wen in Portugal this species is scarce, 109 to 114 and the females are rarities. The females emerge much later than the males and the beautiful specimen, 114, was caught by my wife only a few days ago. Dr. Verity will study this Portuguese form of maera. O. Querci 1928
